We're moving to Canada in 3 months but we need a new car now. Buy? Lease? Here? There?

Our little blue wonder-car has finally started to become more of a burden than we can afford, and we don't want to make the investment to get it inspected right now. We need a new car. We're moving to Canada in 3 months - it is my assumption that if we were to lease a car in the US right now, we wouldn't be able to bring it to Canada.
So, buying, maybe? What about warranty? A lot of dealers around us offer long-term warranties that are very attractive on used cars, but do these generally apply in Canada? This is important to us, as we would like to keep costs to a minimum for the next few years and don't really want to budget for wear and tear repairs.
Should we wait until we get to Canada, and make do for now? How hard will it be for us to buy a car with no Canadian credit?
This is very confusing. Can anyone help make sense of it?
